“It was a great night, a great deal of interest, the phone was off the hook running for almost two days,” Ben Otter Coolangatta Sands Hotel  said this afternoon.

Otter says around 400 crammed into the room exhausted, with interest from all over South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales. The place did not have a lot of time to prepare for the attack; it all came together a lot in the last minute.

“It was all very last minute, we knew about 36 hours before play and put it all together and wine,” says Otter. “We had a good tip was to come and meet with your team the day before, we are a very efficient group of people.”

There is no word as to how long Buffett will be in the country or whether or not it will play any sample, also while he is here. Florida singer last performed in Australia in 2012, playing small shows once in Brisbane and Melbourne that sold out in a matter of seconds.

But it was not the death of astronauts apparently led Buffet song . As the lyrics to ” The Rocket That grandfather Rode ” track, the inspiration came from a trip , the musician took a year before, in July 2011 .

“We will see shipments fly away – last day “ counts the songs.

The rocket that Neil Armstrong rode : Apollo 11 Saturn V lifts off from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on July 16, 1969 .

As recalled Rick Armstrong, one of the two sons of Moonwalker , he and his sons were sitting in the last row of the bus. As they were driven beyond the voluminous Vehicle Assembly Building , said something along the lines of , “which is where grandfather rode the rocket was being put together . “

Hearing this, the man sitting in front of Armstrong and his family turned and replied, “That sounds like a good idea for a song , ” Rick Armstrong recounted in an e- mail to collectSpace.com .

The change led to the introduction , and Jimmy Buffett met to Armstrong.

The VIP viewing site NASA launch is adjacent to the V Center Apollo / Saturn , where one of the three remaining Saturn V rocket is on full display . The 363 – foot-long (110 meters) was the booster rocket type Armstrong – along with Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins – rode to the moon in July 1969 .

” Mouthpieces of the Giants, bolts and beams ,” Buffett sings: ” She was a stairway to heaven, ole ‘Apollo 11″ .

” The rocket was driving his grandfather , “ repeats the chorus.

Buffett did more than the space shuttle Atlantis launch clock that day. He a private concert for transport workers , which marks the end of 30 years of launches were also conducted .

As “The Rocket That grandfather Rode “ ends , thanks NASA Buffett , as he does ” Neil” .

It is the only time the singer paid tribute to the first man to walk on the Moon.

The August 25, 2012 , on the day of Armstrong died , Buffett was acting for an audience in Wisconsin, when at the end of his show , devoted an encore performance to the late astronaut.

“We have lost a great aviator in America today ,” he told attendees Buffett concert . ” Neil Armstrong died, the man in the moon . As you know, flying has been an inspiration in my life all the time, so I’d like to send this off to the family of Neil Armstrong tonight . It’s a little thing called ‘ Oysters and Pearls ‘ and it certainly was a pearl . “

The lyrics of aviator Charles Lindbergh and mentioning the artist Elvis Presley. Buffett added a final verse interpretation of that night .

” Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, and now he’s gone to heaven, ” Buffet sang.

JIMMY BUFFETT The Missionary Song LYRICS

I didn’t know we were at war
I’ve been away so long
Trying to help once lost men
Distinguish right from wrong
I didn’t know we killed the men
Our leaders proud and strong
The situation’s changed my friend
I’ve been away too long

I taught my friends
How we had gained respect for every man
And freedom flowed like jungle streams
While peace embraced the land
I told them how we’d learn to change
Our sword blades into plows
I told them how they should learn from us
What should I tell them now

‘Cause I didn’t know we were at war
I’ve been away so long
Trying to help once lost men
Distinguish right from wrong

The jungle silence shut them off
From civilized mankind
Their nakedness was no disgrace
No censors could I find
The population lived in peace
All brothers on their own
And now that I have seen the mess
I don’t think I’ll go home

‘Cause I didn’t know we were at war
I’ve been away so long
I told them they should learn from us
I think I told them wrong

JIMMY BUFFETT Still In Paradise Song LYRICS

I got stuck in paradise
I’m free in my head
Changed my attitude
And my head’s turned dred
I just met Mickey Maloney
On the beach down the shore
Said to call him in New York
And come knock on some doors
I thought it was kind
It’s not on my mind
I’m sitting here
Doin some quality time

[Music bridge and harmonica and lead guitar]

This one’s for them babies bigots?
In Madison Avenue
In their stretch limosines
And three page contracts too
And the ??hair of the trendies?
Who didn’t have a clue
And if they did, didn’t know what to do
And for my buddies in freight elevators
And 8th Avenue
With their flight-cases and axes
And their tokens too
Intelligenes
Show shredded jeans (dreams)?
But still survived by gigs and scenes
And for Bob and they boys
Down in Washington square
I miss you all, I just wish you were here

I got stuck in paradise
I’m free in my head
Changed my attitude
And my head’s turned dred
I just met Mickey Maloney
On the beach down the shore
Said to call him in New York
And come knock on some doors
I thought it was kind
It’s not on my mind
I’m sitting here
Doin some quality time

JIMMY BUFFETT Quietly Making Noise Song LYRICS

Oscar Wilde died in bed
Several floors above my head
Living well beyond his means
In that crazy Paris scene
Rain falls down in sheets so clear
No one ever calls me here
Traveling by my self these days
I’m into jazz and felt berets
Far from the that old eastern shore
Searching for strange metaphors
I don’t want to be another victim of fashion
I don’t want to see my name in the paper each day
Leave that to the young Turks
They’re more handsome and dashing
Posing for paparazzi’s down Laguna way
Down in the metro I feel the world start to multiply
Bastille, rubber wheels, spiked heels, subterranean lullaby
Met an African prancer, a hemisphere dancer
Spied the ghost of Brassens
We smiled at the secret we shared
And I hid it like contraband

Quietly making noise, making noise
Starts with kindergarten toys
Not too soft not too loud
Just enough to draw a crowd
Quietly, quietly, quietly making noise
Followed the beat, I found myself in this patois spot

Outside a blizzard was blowing but inside the joint was hot
Zouk songs, rubber thongs, sing-a-longs
The words flew right by my face
Rhythm and motions, a blamma jamma potion
You cannot erase

Quietly making noise, making noise
Pissin off the old killjoys
Glass packs on a hot Mustang
A Telecaster with a twang
Quietly, quietly, quietly making noise

Singers and writers and poets
Have flocked here for centuries
The city of light is built upon mountains of memories
Baritone saxophone, monotones
Speak of the voice I’ve heard before
It’s a lasting impression
A Gypsy expression you cannot ignore

Jimmy Buffett Great Filling Station Holdup Song Lyrics

By: jimmy buffett
1973
I pulled into the regular pump
I was feelin’ quite at ease
I rolled down my window and told the man, “fifty cents worth please”
Then out jumped my partner with his trusty pellet gun
He said, “boy this is a holdup, keep ‘a pumpin’ and don’t run”

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin’ on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
Because that great fillin’ station holdup
Cost me two good years

We got fifteen dollars and a can of stp
A big ol’ jar of cashew nuts and a japanese tv
Feelin’ we had pulled the biggest heist of our career
We’re wanted men, we’ll strike again
But first let’s have a beer

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin’ on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
Because that great fillin’ station holdup
Cost me two good years

(guitar instrumental)

We were sittin’ in the krystal
About as drunk as we could be
In walks the deputy sheriff
And he’s holdin’ our tv
Roughed us then he cuffed us
And he took us off to jail
No pictures on a poster, no reward and no bail

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin’ on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
’cause that great fillin’ station holdup
Cost me two good years

Coda:
Yes that great fillin’ station holdup
It cost me two good years
